Went on the glass bottom boat tour as a family of 4. Absolute joke. No life jackets given to the two kids to start with. Was taken to a random spot and told to jump off the boat to go snorkelling. Being over 5 meters deep and with no kind of boyancy no way would I let my 9 year old go in. Then was taken further round to a place where all the other boats were, to jump into shallow ish water where you can buy pineapples or coconuts. Was told it would be crystal clear waters… you couldn’t see in the water and my 9 year old could barely touch the bottom. To top it off we were followed the whole time by a photographer taking photos of the awful time. On the way back we’re told the photos were $100 were we paying by cash or card? Did t want the photos but once we reached the shore the receptionist said we had to buy the photos and then demanded cash. Was followed to the room demanding cash. Photos arrived of a random couple, meaning photos of our young children were also sent to random people. Absolute awful experience and will be warning all hotel stayers to avoid.

My 3 kids got Certified with "Eugenio"! He was the best Instructor. Was patient and kind. He treated my kids as his own and walked them through there Certification. Im not one to write reviews, but when someone goes beyond the regular they deserve it. I highly recommend Dolin Divers to anyone. Eugenio allowed me to go on there final dive with them. The whole experience was EXCELLENT!! We can't wait to go back. Thank you for your honesty and the way you treated my family!!! FIVE STAR!

Marcos Edward was our guide for a snorkeling/catamaran excursion and took great care of us. He made sure we had a good time and is very comfortable in his role! We have gone on this same excursion in previous years and it is always a good time. They will take you out to a reef for snorkeling and there are so many cool things to see! Then you get back on the boat where they have soft drinks and alchol and take you to a natural pool about waist deep where you get to hang out and drink more. They will also take pictures of you while on the boat and in the water, and while they can be a little cheesy, it's a lot of fun. You can purchase the pictures afterward and while they give you a price, it is negotiable. All in all a fun half day experience.

My wife and I went to Dolin Dive Center to complete our PADI open water diver certification. Our experience was absolutely fantastic! Our dive master Juan Carlos was incredible. He was professional, knowledgeable and attentive. His primary focus was on our safety while making our dives fun and exciting. His passion for diving was contagious and his joy for teaching was apparent from the moment we met him. Always smiling, laughing and enjoying himself. It was very apparent that he loves his profession very much and has a special talent for passing that enthusiasm on to his students. My wife and I feel very fortunate that he was our instructor. Our boat captain Avolisto was also fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the conditions and also very helpful in getting us in and out of the boat safely. Carmen at reception was also friendly and always asking if she could do anything for us while we waited for the boat, transportation, etc. I can't imagine a better place for us to have completed our dives for PADI certification! Thank you Carmen, Avolisto(Capitan)and all the rest at Dolin Dive Center. And a special thank you to Juan Carlos for passing on your passion for diving! You are the best! Lewie & Monica

Review of: Speed boat
Did a catamaran trip to la saona, worse experience ever.. I should’ve definitely read reviews first and researched different companies because this one is a scam!!! Six of us paid $95 each , it was suppose to be all inclusive sand bar , star fish excursion, and la saona island!! VERY UNORGANIZED, food was garbage (hardly nothing) the catamaran was trash looked like a fishing boat from forest gump drinks were limited to rum and Coke only!!! Oh did I mention no organization!! Even though my friend was a local she even said it wasn’t worth it!!! Scam Scam SCAM STAY AWAY!!! Also they cram people into the speed boat to get back !!
